The Development and Evaluation of a Public Transit Transfer Guidance and Information Provision System for Pedestrians

Our consortium has developed a public transit information system that provides railroad and bus transfer information, as well as shopping and sightseeing information, in order to promote use of public transportation and provide economic impetus to train station environs in areas where train stations serve as a focal point for local community interaction. The system is being tested at Senrichuo Station on the Kita-Osaka Kyuko and Osaka Monorail lines. It is a key terminal in the Osaka Prefecture region used by 120,000 passengers a day and considered a difficult station to locate for boarding. The test will serve to evaluate the system’s usefulness and aid in enhancing its applicability.
